Tell us about your music.
My music is me and I make music based on how I feel at that particular moment. I don’t just sing; I have to sing about something or about what I have been through; this inspires me to do music. For example, my new single titled marijuana, which I am going to be dropping very soon, is a typical example of what I am talking about. I put together people’s experience which I have witnessed and heard about, coupled with my own experience and made the song.
Who are your mentors?
Jesus Christ is my number one mentor. I admire His meekness, wisdom, faith and love for everyone, no matter whom and what they are. I also look up to Tu Face, Burna Boy, Wande Coal, Wizkid, Davido, Bryson Tiller, Tory Lanez, Drake, Runtown, because they are all super-duper talented.
Where do you see ourself in five years?
I see Lil Trim as a household name and kicking off my own record label and producing at least two or three superstars from the hood. I also see myself as a multi award-wining artist, both international and local.
